My Husband and I run a small Rustic cabin and campground near the Appalachian Trail. We are brand new in this area and are looking for a couple with similar interest and experience. We would love to have a couple that we can build a trusting relationship with who enjoys being outdoors, camping, talking to hikers and campers and doesn't mind a little hard work in the rain, snow or sunshine.
